I did the work myself and did not add foot rest.. not enough room.
While this is 100% the opposite of what the op asked, it has great value to everyone else reading this, so I'll add:
That power unit is available from almost every gm from my 1966 through my 2001 blazer and possibly newer.
It's available at almost any salvage yard in the world for 20-ish bucks.
Just a note for those capable and interested.
I have two of these units set aside right now.
The power units we have aren't installed because I'm waiting to find salvaged 30 way ventilated Lincoln seats as full replacements.
In the mean time, the bolsters suggested are the solution for us.(and it's likely we'll still need bolsters even with the Lincoln seats.)
We added spacers as outlined in my ongoing thread by someone else. Half inch stack of washers added to the two front seat bolts on the stock axis seats. It made me stop looking for immediate seat replacement. The change made the axis seats VERY nice for us.
We'll still do the swap, because we can, and ventilated and heated and massage and memory and all that. But with that slight lift in the front of the stock seats, there is now no hurry for the swap.
